Inchie Holder




I have quite got into inches lately and really enjoy swapping them. But I do hate just stuffing them into a little bag or envelope to post off to the swap hostess. So last night I came up with this, an Inchie Holder. I Also hope the swap hostess will find it usefull to store her own set in until she decides what to do with them.
I used a couple of card off cuts and some vellum cut into strips and just used distress inks to colour it. The front is stamped to fall in with the Inchie theme.

I like the way I can adapt it to use for larger swaps too.
The first photo shows how the Inches sit in the case and the second is just the front of it.
